Mind Reading- Groks Science Show 2014-04-02

Today we'll hear from Dr. Nicholas Epley, professor at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and author of the book Mindwise. He'll tell us about mistakes we consistently make when trying to reason what our spouses want and how our colleagues see us. Avoiding these mistakes can even aid the counter-terrorism effort.
